Ingredients Needed to Make the Pork Chops and Rice Casserole
Make the Pork Chops and Rice Casserole using these essential ingredients:
- Pork Chops. Get a family pack of boneless pork chops. If you want to try other pork chop recipes, here is my Sweet and Sour Pork Chops, a Lemon Pepper Pork Chops and Veggies, or my Apple Sauce Pork Chops.
- White Rice. You will need uncooked white rice to add to the casserole dish.
- Cream of Mushroom Soup. Give your casserole that creamy consistency with cream of mushroom soup.
- Onion Soup Mix. Add flavor and thin pieces of onions to the mix using a packet of onion soup.
You will also need beef broth, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley to prepare this creamy casserole for your family.
Can I Make the Cream of Mushroom Soup?
When preparing the Pork Chops and Rice Casserole, you will need three cans of cream of mushroom soup. If you do not like the canned version of the soup, you absolutely can make your own version of cream of mushroom soup.
It requires a bit more work, but you can make it in advance specifically for this recipe. Combine chicken broth with fresh sliced mushrooms, butter, evaporated milk, and all-purpose flour to make it from scratch.
Which Pork Chops Are Best to Use?
It is best to use boneless pork loin chops. You do not want to accidentally bite down on a piece of bone while trying to enjoy this large family pork meal! Pork loin chops are thin, long, and easy to work with, which makes them an excellent cut of meat to use in your freezer-friendly casserole.
Can I Make the Dish With Chicken?
If you do not have pork chops but you want to make this meal, you can use boneless, skinless chicken breast and make this a chicken meal. However, there is something about pork chops that go perfectly with the cream of mushroom soup and white rice, so it is a good idea to use them!
What Can I Serve with the Pork Chops Casserole?
You might want to add vegetables or a side to this recipe to make it a complete meal. Your large family would enjoy Sheet pan Roasted Broccoli, Collard Greens with Ham, Green Bean Casserole, Instant Pot Corn on the Cob, or Steamed Carrots.
How to Freeze the Pork Chops and Rice Casserole
Assemble the recipe completely. Place aluminum foil over your Pork Chops and Rice Casserole, seal it tightly, and place it in the freezer. You can store this easy-to-make oven dinner for a maximum of three months. When you plan on eating the casserole, pull it out from the freezer, put it in the fridge to thaw for 12-24 hours, and then follow the baking instructions.
